Two armed persons wearing full face helmets, who arrived on a motorcycle, had stormed the People’s Bank branch at Kudawella around 9.50 am yesterday and robbed cash at gunpoint before escaping on the motorcycle, according to a complaint made to Tangalle Police on the police hotline.

Police said a customer who received a gunshot injury when the suspects opened fire during the melee, is warded at the Tangalle hospital. There was no information about the amount of money robbed by the suspects.
